Just reviving this thread to ask if there's any hack to re-glue the internal female valves? Guessing I'll glue it back on from the outside instead (like the self stick replacements). Not sure how to clamp/weight these down while the glue cures or how to get baking paper around the inside to catch the excess.
Did the external valves a while back, they were more straight forward: cleaned valve base & bladder, baking paper inside, glued valve down with a piece of tear aid sandwiched over the top for good measure, hole saw through a coaster size piece of wood & placed over valve with an upturned shot glass & 2kg weight on top. Left overnight then twist baking paper out through the valve with needle nose pliers.
It'd be easier to buy some self sticks but these aren't too brittle yet & I'd like to try gluing first if possible. Probably go the isolation route before spending $120+ on valves anyway.
